The staff was very aware of gluten free and the pasta I got was very yummy. The reason for only 3 stars is that I was really looking forward to the entree to-go that you get free with an entree but reheated, the pasta was almost inedible.
I have eaten here several times and always had a dedicated knowledgable staff member oversee my order. The food is always very good and I have never had a reaction eating here. I just make a comment about a "gluten allergy" on my open table reservation and they send someone over to discuss accommodations for my celiac as soon as I'm seated.
Staff was accommodating. They were busy and didn't seem to care too much about my celiac, however no side effects from meal and it was good.
They are so accommodating to celiac disease and they strive to ensure that you have a pleasurable dining experience! This is one of my favorite places for dinner!
I stopped in and ordered takeout for dinner. Had a long conversation with the takeout host about gluten free options. He was great and even checked with the kitchen on salad dressings. I got back to my hotel and my entree was regular spaghetti (easy to tell since it wasn't their GF penne shape). And there was a big hunk of bread in the bag. Called the restaurant and they sent someone to my hotel with a GF entree 40 minutes later. I was super sick later that night. I might dine in at a different location but I'd never do take out again.
I was very impressed with this place. The chef came out to speak to us personally after saying I had a gluten allergy. He discussed all of my options and was willing to prepare anything I wanted GF, which was incredible. Food was really, really good. LARGE portions. Not sure about how they handle cross contamination in the kitchen but I'm a sensitive celiac and I did not get sick. Definitely a great option when going out with a large group of non-celiacs.
I was very impressed. The waiter asked if we had any allergies without prompting. The chef came to the table to discuss what we could order. They could make many things gluten free. My girls had spaghetti with meat sauce. I had chix parm with grilled chix. (3 celiacs) They even had gf creme brulee. We loved it.
Absolutely amazing!!!! Traveled to Denver as my husband came here on business. The chef came right to my table and assisted me with ordering. He even gave me a complementary appetizer as I could not eat the rolls! Delicious gf pasta. Most if not all of the sauces are gf. One of the best experiences at a restaurant since I was diagnosed celiac 5 years ago!
Pretty much any dish can be altered if necessary to be GFree. Chef came out to check on my GFree order. Excellent cuisine. Full bar and decent wine list. Sinatra always on. Can't ask for more.
The best service I've ever had. Server was knowledgeable about GF, checked with chef on anything he didn't know, was vigilant with food brought to the table by the runner. AND GF dessert. It was lunch, but I couldn't resist having some creme brûlée. It was very good (not great, but very good).
They had some kind of chips for before dinner that were pretty good. I had the ziti & it was amazing! The atmosphere, the food, the people all 5 stars. I will return.
90% of the menu can be made GF. Staff was super accommodating and very knowledgable about gluten sensitivity. My sons have Celiac and the chef came to speak with us and made their meal separate to avoid any cross contamination. We had a great time!!!!
The first time I went here I had a seafood pasta which I did not enjoy. The shells were cracked all over my food and it was awful. Since then I decided to give them another chance. I explained the situation and the chef was really accommodating. I now go here regularly and the food is fab I always go for a pasta dish and tell the chef what I would like in it
Didn't get sick here! Had 2 pastas baked ziti and Alfredo sauce and ate leftovers and didn't get sick. chef came out just like everyone said. I think they only have gf penne. I like not getting sick but personally don't love the chain feel of this place.
Absolutely delicious. Chef came to table and offered to prepare 80% of the menu gluten free - not just pastas, all the main courses. Only thing couldn't modify to gluten free was desserts. Speaking of desserts- the creme brûlée was gluten free and it was outstanding, probably the best tasting I have EVER had. The food here is fresh, cooked to order, the staff is friendly, GF knowledgeable, and everything we had was so tasty. BTW they will accommodate many food allergies, ie. eggs, milk, nuts etc. Highly recommend this place even if you have to drive a little while to get there because it is so worth it.
Twice I've had normal noodles in my gf dish even after the chef came out to speak with me. The waiter and manager were very apologetic and gave my date and I free full size desserts and my meal was free. Luckily I noticed the noodles pretty early on so I was able to get them to make a new one without getting sick.
I've been to this location three times. The chef always comes out and is very helpful with celiac and allergies. I wish they had gf bread but the food is good and I haven't gotten sick.
got glutened. had the pasta with sausage
I have to say that this is probably one of the best dining experiences I have had since being diagnosed with Celiac two years ago. My waiter(Abraham) was great and told me that the kitchen was prepared and knowledgeable in preparing gluten free food and had a dedicated workspace. He told me the chef would be right out to discuss my order. Eric the chef and I spoke about what I would be ordering and how it would be prepared. I ordered the Taylor Street Pasta with sausage and it was fantastic. Later on Abraham treated my table with creme brûlée (also gluten free ) for dessert. The manager, Charles was also wonderful and very attentive. Great experience. Will go back.
While they don't have a gf menu, the chef came out to discuss what I would like. They have gf penne pasta but I'm also counting calories so I substituted spinach. Very good!
very knowledgeable about gluten free and very accommodating . the manager Mario and our waiter they are great.
This is my new happy place!!! GF bread and amazing pasta!
Not only the best Italian food I've eaten, the service was incredible, and the staff took exceptional care to provide safe food. The chef spoke directly to me to ensure that my meal was GF. I am so impressed with them! We will visit every time we are in Cinci!
Dont tell me the menu is completely gluten free! Calamari Fritte? Nope. Eggplant Parm? Nope. Ok lets move onto all of the gluten free pasta- Ravioli? Nope. Fettuccini? Nope. Braised beef papardelli? Nope...hmmm GF bread for the table? Nope. Ok ill have the most popular pasta dish? Rigatoni D? Sure!!! Comes out with Penne!!!! Accck!!! waiyer didnt have patience or too much knowledge and hardly spoke to me for the rest of the meal even though i was completely disappointed . Of course i was charged full price for my meal. Will not be going back.
They have always done a wonderful job keeping our food gluten free. The chef always comes out and talked to us about what our options were. Many of the dishes that have some type of noodle can be made gluten free. Haven't ever gotten sick
AMAZING! Super Celiac friendly and the whole family loves it.♡
For a Celiac, the chef coming out and paying attention is a no-brained. Had an issue with take out once because just dealing with that person, who was new, so be super clear, but no issues with in restaurant ever.
The service was completely lackluster. The GM Matt came to our table and raved about how they have a full scratch kitchen and can make anything safe. My friend and I feel confident that this could be a good experience. Fast forward to dinner, my friend orders the Johnny's Carbonara with Gluten free pasta and has them add grilled chicken. It looks good, a few bites in something seems off, but he doesn't think anything of it. He is almost done and noticed there is a piece of fettuccine mixed in with his gluten free penne! Apparently someone in the kitchen wasn't paying attention when they made his meal! We had the manager come over and while they did comp our entire meal, that didn't help the fact that he spent the next several hours between the toilet and the bed. We will never be going back to any Maggiano's again. Not worth the risk!
Another excellent visit. Enjoyed Gluten-Free pasta and sauce served in hearty portion. Chef visits your table prior to ordering to discuss menu options. Great value if you order selected pasta dishes that are two for one (one to enjoy in restaurant and one to take home, or two as take out). The dining room is always packed (be sure to make a reservation) because the food is outstanding. 3-1-2016 review: 5 stars. Great GF Italian food in restaurant or to go. GF pasta and sauces are definitely some of the best I have ever had (they are so good that even non-allergic people will eat them and say they are good). I have eaten here multiple times and have never had a reaction. Highly recommended.
I agreed to eat here because I heard they are cautious. I asked the waitress what she suggested for someone with celiac and she assured me they could alter nearly anything to accommodate me. She even told me the chef would come out to discuss options but he never did. I ordered a simple pasta and substituted with GF. When eating my leftovers, I found about 10 stray (gluten-full) spaghetti noodles and ended up throwing it out. I was hoping they'd be careful in the kitchen like they said, but I won't be going back. Not worth the risk or feeling sick.
When we said we were celiac, the chef came out himself to review the menu with us and make sure he could accommodate our needs. He helped is pick an appetizer - baked calamari instead of fried. They substitute gf penne for the pasta options. My daughter had the meat sauce and I had Shrimp Fra diavola both of which were delicious! All sauces are made in house and gluten free. We will definitely come back.
I never had a problem until this last time when I got very sick from "gluten free" baked ziti.
Maggianos has recently been voted #1 for celiac friendly by AllergyEats!! They sent a chef out to talk to me when I informed them of my dietary restriction. The chef explained how they could modify dishes to make them gluten free. The staff was very knowledgeable and I felt taken care of. The food was delicious and exactly what I needed after a long day of working in an unfamiliar city.
went there a few weeks ago. gluten free penne substitute for most pasta dishes. was very good, replaced linguini with gluten free penne with no issue. I don't believe they have a separate kitchen or actively avoid contamination but it was good for my intolerance.
Cross Contamination. Could barely make it home... Never again will I go here
Incredibly careful with your food. chef came out to talk to me about menu options and then the manager came to take my order on a giant yellow ticket that way they knew for sure it was an allergy ticket. I have a dairy allergy as well as celiac and there were many options. had veal and potatoes. was amazing. I will definitely be returning! !!
Lots of gluten free items including fish and pasta. We have been here a few times. The manager speaks with us and reviews the menu options. Last night I had a great Cesar salad and the salmon.
Delicious food, nice atmosphere but most importantly, excellent service! A chef personally greeted me when I mentioned I was a coeliac. He took care to explain and assure me of their kitchen procedures and how they handled their gluten free dishes. They're incredibly accommodating- I even got gluten-free bread!
Have eaten here many times and have never gotten a Celiac reaction. Most times manager or chef comes to table before I order!
